Sheer sandstone canyons and gentle slopes comprise the 1,512 acres of Grayson Lake State Park. This site was a favorite camping area for Shawnee and Cherokee Indians, and you will discover why with a visit to the park?s spacious campground.

Enjoy a picnic meal cooked over the grill and relax under the stars in a tent or camper. Our new 18-hole golf course, Hidden Cove, was named one of the "2004 Best New Affordable Courses" by "Golf Digest" magazine. This par-72 course encircles Grayson Lake and is protected by five fairway bunkers; it's sure to provide a challenge to golfers of any skill level.

The .8-mile Beech-Hemlock Forest Trail is an opportunity to discover and appreciate the distinctive plants, rock formations, and wildlife of the park. The trail begins near the theater area, and circles the campground near the shoreline of the lake. Of particular interest on the trail are the several species of ferns, mosses, and lichens, the flowering rhododendron, "lizard head rock," and the unusual combination of beech-hemlock trees.

There is also a 3-mile Lick Falls loop trail for the more hearty hiker.
